Remove HAProxy and Configuration
I am curious on how to completely remove HAProxy package from my pfsense unit, as I am wanting to utilize NGINX Proxy Manager through a docker on my server instead. I have attempted to uninstall the package however it is still not allowing me to forward the necessary ports that I am needing for NGINX. I'm assuming I have to wipe the configuration file for HAProxy in order for this to successfully work. If so, what steps are needed to wipe my HAProxy config?
My last resort if I am unable to perform this is to factory reset my firewall and start over, I am really not looking forward to such a task but if I have to then I suppose. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
When you forward the traffic, it cannot reach HAproxy anymore, no matter if it is installed and running or not.
Port forwarding happens at the first level on the incoming packets.
So HAproxy or even its settings might not be responsible for your issue at all.
If you're in doubt, you can sniff the traffic on the inside interface.
So there will be another reason for that. Best to investigate with packet capture to see, what's going on.
